The original part of the property was left mainly untouched and retains many of its original features including high ceilings, sash windows and shutters. Striking a nice balance of old-world charm and modern convenience, the accommodation encompasses an entrance hall, family room, sitting room, wet room, utility, and kitchen/living room. It also has four bedrooms and a number of bathrooms.
